Avigdor Liberman Announces his Resignation

Published on: December 14, 2012

Minister Liberman announced his resignation today as Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister.  Below is a translation of his statement:

Today I held meetings with my lawyers and members of electoral committee.  The law does not require that I resign from my governmental position in light of the details of the indictment.

Although I know I have not violated any laws, out of a desire that after so many years of legal proceedings, investigations and wiretaps against me I can also put the matter that remains behind me, I decided to resign from my position as Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister and as I announced yesterday also to give up my parliamentary immunities effective immediately.
